Goff reports that: "One of Ozil's reps will meet with DCU officials next week in Washington."

Should they agree any deal in their meetings, then it means Mesut Ozil will have to stay at the Emirates stadium until January 2020 before he can leave.

Earning around £350,000-a-week at Arsenal and plying his trade in the US will be one of the few places that could afford to pay such amount.

Wayne Rooney was reported to have been convinced to move back to the UK by wife Coleen who wants their four boys to grow up closer their home in Cheshire.

“I am very excited about the opportunity that Derby County have provided me with.

“I am looking forward to joining Phillip Cocu, his coaching staff and the first-team squad from the start of January,'' Rooney explained according to UK Sun.
